The People's Republic of China, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the United States of America and the French Republic issued declarations against nuclear war. This became known from the corresponding statement on the Kremlin website.

“We declare that there can be no winners in a nuclear war and it should never be unleashed. Since the use of nuclear weapons would have far-reaching consequences, we also reaffirm that nuclear weapons - as long as they continue to exist - must serve defensive purposes, deter aggression and the prevention of war. We believe that the further proliferation of such weapons must be prevented," said in the message.

It is noted that these five countries have declared their commitment to the obligations under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), including the obligations under Article VI "in good faith to negotiate effective measures to end the nuclear arms race in the near future and nuclear disarmament."

The leaders of the countries note that they intend to continue looking for bilateral and multilateral diplomatic approaches in order to avoid military confrontation, enhance stability and predictability, increase the level of mutual understanding and trust, and prevent an arms race that will benefit no one and become a threat to all.

The countries also pledged to further strengthen national measures to prevent the unauthorized or unintentional use of nuclear weapons.
